Saab Expands Support for GLSDB

Nammo and Nordic Shelter in Collaborative Agreement

Saab, Nammo and Nordic Shelter signed an MoU to support the ongoing Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB) campaign in Olso on 23 November.

Nammo will contribute its expertise in rocket motor development and production, as part of the GLSDB propulsion sub-system, while Nordic Shelter brings the knowledge and experience needed for development and production of a modular GLSDB launcher, based on a purpose built 20ft ISO container.

With Nammo and Nordic Shelter as part of the team, we have two great Norwegian companies who can benefit from future export prospects, while lending their expertise to make GLSDB an even more compelling solution. The range of the system, its 360˚ coverage and precision, with the ability to use a discrete launcher configuration, makes GLSDB unique amongst artillery systems,” commented Görgen Johansson, Head of Saab’s Dynamics business area.

GLSDB is a long-range precision artillery system developed by Saab and Boeing, based on the latter’s air-launched Small Diameter Bomb (SDB), which has been in production since 2006, with more than 30,000 units shipped. GLSDB enables the Small Diameter Bomb to be ground-launched from a wide variety of launchers and platform configurations.
